  1. The light switch is probably in the cab,look over and around by he clutch pedal
  2. How much larger,does it fit the spindal correctly,I would go with the original,better safe than sorry..
  3. Doesn't sound like it's fixed to me,I would love to drive this truck to see/feel what your experiencing,..
  4. That's exactly my thinking but a couple people posted otherwise,I personally know of more than a few Macks in there 80's that still have the original front springs,Thanks for your input..
  5. Thanks,not sure what to do now,is it worth even replacing on 22 year old springs or should I just go to a spring shop and replace the springs ?
  6. Anybody have one of those external mount power window motors they want to part with?
  7. I don't think an out of balance drum would make the truck wobble at 25 mph,out of round maybe,do what Chevy said look for wheel wobble by jacking up and turning the tires.
  8. You need a steerable lift axle to transfer that permit,that permit is worth quit a few bucks so don't let it go,you can bank the weight until u get a truck to use it,Send an e-mail to Wiliam J Morris@dot.ny.gov they are very helpful.If u can post some pictures off your truck someone here can tell u what axle you have.How much was the truck previous registered for?
  9. Is this a tri axle with a steerable lift axle?
  10. As far as I know there the original springs,20,000 lb,there are no cracked or broken leaf and I'm sure the pins and bushings are original also
  11. Any body replace there own pins and bushings,these are the screw in type on a 96 Mack,pins shouldn't be a problem but the bushings look to be another story,looks like a job for a professional ?
  12. Well one thing about a set back axle it gives the truck a heck of a bounce when u hit a sharp dip in the road like on a concert road where a slap dropped down,thinking this might eliminate that or at the least help quite a bit.
  13. Yeah I figured that,not much one can do on a short wheel base and set back axle with 58 rears 20 front and drop axle..lol
  14. Any body ever try the Timbren suspension on the front,air bag or the hollow rubber type,the roads are getting worse here every day and my CL is getting the shit pounded out of it,and me along with it? I'm sure I rember a few seconds years back someone on here installed the air bags on the front of there CL but I can't find it now..
  15. If your talking about the cap that's welded to the bar it's supposed to be there and there is no oil just Greece.
  16. Well if the 02 has blow by when it's cold it's gonna be a whole lot worse when your working it,I would favor the granit,it's a much nicer truck to drive to in my opinion..
  17. Thanks will will be at the dealer this weekend..
  18. Are they still available from Mack or any where else,for a 96 ?
  19. Thanks for the info,gonna check it out tomorrow
  20. Bet it rides better than my cl with 58 rears..lol
  21. So on a truck with 250000 miles what should I look for as far as wear,looking at an 06 kenworth tomorrow,owner says he loves it and it rides great?
  22. Any body here running haulmaxx suspension on a triaxle dump,what's the good bad and the ugly?
  23. According to Mack you do more harm then good by un necessary air filter changes,just passing it along..
